Share "The Power of a Cape" in booklet form!

People always ask me where I got the idea for Creative Capes, so I've been looking for another way to tell my story to new customers or those who might get a cape as a gift for their child.

I'm so excited to be able to share a new booklet that tells the story of Creative Capes in a compact format. Inside you will find what inspired me to take the journey of Creative Capes, information on the value of open-ended play in igniting children's imaginations, how to connect with the Creative Capes Community, and care instructions on how to make your cape last for many years. These will be included with every order and will also be available in my booth at craft shows. Grab a couple, and share with your friends!

Beyond the Cape! Comics and Contemporary Art at Boca Raton Museum of Art

 

I am tickled pink to be included in the Boca Raton Museum of Art's merchandise for their "Beyond the Cape!” art exhibit opening in mid April. An assortment of Creative Capes and accessories will be available in their gift shop during the exhibit starting April 16th. If you're in the area, make sure to stop by to experience the art!

 

 

 

Beyond the Cape! Comics and Contemporary Art focuses on contemporary artists directly influenced by comics. Artists come from the world of comics with a variety of points of view such as Renee Cox who adapts the super hero theme in her work and Joyce Pensato and Enrique Chagoya borrow iconic characters from comics to comment on issues relevant today. Artists known primarily for their work in the world of comics and graphic novels will also be included: R. Crumb, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Mimi Pond, and Ron Wimberly. There are others who crossover into both worlds such as Richard Pettibon and Anton Kannemeyer; and Kerry James Marshall and Christian Marclay who have made comics in addition to work for which they are better known.

Duopress and Creative Capes Team Up!

When I start my work week I never know what interesting calls or emails I might encounter. My days are typically filled with sewing, cutting fabric, marketing efforts, accounting, screening robo calls, ordering supplies, responding to customers, posting on social media... you get the picture – the life of an entrepreneur. But I find every week has a special nuance which keeps me on my toes.

In January, Duopress, a book publisher in Baltimore, MD, was promoting their new hardboard book, "Do you know a SUPERHERO?" and came across my website. It was immediately evident that my mission aligned perfectly with their book's theme - we are all superheroes. We did a joint Instagram contest where one participating IG follower would receive a custom superhero set and "Do You Know a SUPERHERO?" book. — Congrats to our winner Toni E.

I love the illustrations by Jesus Escudero and the message of this empowering book and wonder if I should consider offering it on my website. Please chime at the bottom of my blog post if I should add it to my superhero collection of items available to the Creative Capes Community. If you want to contact me privately you can email me directly, Holly@creativecapes.com, or use my contact page to reach me. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and don't forget to follow Creative Capes on Facebook and IG to learn about future contests.
